Notes from RPG & DB2 Summit in Orlando

Orlando Summit is almost over. Except for the (not unexpected) lower attendance, it has been an excellent Summit. The Summit attendees are always very motivated to learn; almost all of them attend a session in every available time slot. Over 80% of them even attend the 8 am "early bird" sessions. That's dedication.
But if possible, everyone here seemed even more motivated to learn than usual. People asked more questions (and more interesting questions) during my sessions than usual.
I was excited (and nervous) to talk about other Rational products besides the RPG compiler, both at the IBM-Rational booth that I was manning, and at the Intro to RTCi session I gave. There was a fair amount of interest in RTCi at the booth, and a few very interested people came to the presentation. I learned a lot myself at the presentation; I can see where RTCi will be a boon for people who currently have only informal ways of managing their projects.
